SPONSORED: Fresha Store is here!
Create your own online store, sell products and boost retail sales!
Fresha, the world's No.1 free appointment scheduling software, is transforming retail performance for its partners and the online shopping experience for their clients with the launch of Fresha Store.
Over 60,000 hair, beauty and wellness partners and 200,000 professionals that manage their appointments, promote services and protect their incomes with Fresha, can now create an online store, promote and sell products, and collect payments all from within Fresha to:
- Impress clients with a professionally designed store
- Offer clients delivery or pick-up options
- Collect online payments with Fresha Payment Processing
- Create your Fresha online shop easily and quickly!
It's natural to want to impress clients, so if you're worried you don't have the technical skills to create a professional looking online shop, Fresha has made it so simple and intuitive, any salon can do it and have a fully functional store in minutes.
“With just a few clicks, you can personalise your store by adding logos, a store name and description, and even add social links, so all your customers will know that you're now trading online,” says Fresha co-founder Nick Miller.
Adding products to your online store couldn't be easier either. Fresha, formerly known as Shedul, recommends taking high quality images to showcase your products at their best and provides help with a dedicated blog to help you take really beautiful product images.
It's time to tell your clients about your new store!
Once your store is set up and ready to go, it's time to let your clients know. With a unique link generated for your store, it's easy to promote it on social media, and via marketing emails and text messages available within the Fresha platform. With delivery and collection options available, businesses can offer clients the choice of collecting their purchase from the salon, reserving it for when they attend their next appointment, or shipping items directly to their home address or workplace.
Online payments that are easy, contactless and upfront
To ensure smooth and seamless payments for your online store, Fresha Payment Processing is the perfect way to collect online payments. First, partners receive money upfront, and of course, it's contactless too. And if for any reason a refund needs to be processed for a purchase made on your online store, that's easily done at the click of a button.
When activated, Fresha simply charges a transaction fee of 1.29% + 20p, so partners only pay as they sell.
William Zeqiri, Fresha CEO and founder: “The potential for online retail in the beauty and wellness industry is huge, and many salons have yet to take advantage of that. Fresha Store is a big step in the right direction, as we've made it easy to create a store within Fresha. As part of our feature mix, it means our partners have everything in one place, which simplifies their business lives too. Their clients are comfortable shopping online with other retailers and e-commerce businesses and it's become a big part of our lives as shopping trends change. Beauty businesses need to be part of this transformation and now they can.”
